Couldn't find it on Citi-Data so I did some digging. I think your confusing Freehold Borough High with Freehold Township High. These are the 2012 rankings for the FRHSD.

1) Marlboro - 1680
2) Colts Neck - 1627
3) Freehold Borough - 1608
4) Manalapan - 1589
5) Freehold Township - 1543

I've lived in Freehold Township for quite a few years. I know all about the politics that goes on in the FRHSD. My three children all went to the Borough high school because that's where we are district for. Couldn't be more happy with the experience and the results. The Boro high school has had a cloud over it for quite some time. Many friends of ours wouldn't send their children there because "THOSE KIDS" go there. It couldn't be further from the truth.

Thank you. Some people have to try to knock it down because of the large hispanic population that lives there. Yes, many are illegals but that don't make them bad people and I will be the first to agree that they shouldn't be here illegally, buts that's a different conversation. Lots of made up B.S. about the borough. I'm not saying it's New Jerseys safest city but it certainly isn't the danger zone that many make it out to be, and yes, there are certain parts of town that most people shouldn't go wandering around at night. Many of the incidents that occur in the Borough is crime on crime. We are in town 2-3 times a week and never feel uncomfortable.

Heck, it's safer than most "white" towns I can think of. Including my own town, which has grossly underreported crimes for years and has de facto segregation. But that's another story for another day.

What about the elementary schools? We're looking at a great home in Freehold borough, but according to Zillow (and the data mined) its seems like the elementary and intermediate schools are really poor. Since we're just starting out that's a big deal. Has anything been changing recently? (so in 5 years it could improve?)

Freehold Borough has been on a steady downward path for years. Back in the day it was a multi-generation lower working class neighborhood. Now it's essentially a sanctuary city full of illegals. I really do not see how it could improve in that sense unless they go in all and physically remove those elements.

Freehold Borough has been going downhill over the last 5-7 years. To many illegals driving the cost of wages low and mouching off of welfare and food stamps.
Putting 18 year old illegals in schools with our kids.
I hope ICE comes soon to clean up this sanctuary city.

Yes, "mouching" is terrible...
